Best Desserts of 2020. These are the most popular sweets I posted on Instagram in 2020. Some of them are old favorites (crepe cake, pavlova and butterscotch pot de creme) and some of them are actually “recipes” I repurposed as I tested the cakes for my upcoming book, Zoë Bakes Cakes! I took the cake fillings (sticky coconut, milk chocolate mascarpone mousse, caramel and bittersweet chocolate ganache) and layered it into a pavlova meringue pie shell to create the Kitchen Sink Angel Pie. I just never know where inspiration will come from! 😉 Other recipes I made from my friends books, like the pumpkin pie with my homemade marshmallows from Erin McDowell’s Book on Pie. The cheesecake was inspired by the little blue berry, but you can make it with any fruit. You’ll find the recipes below and I have TUTORIALS ON INSTAGRAM!

Happy Baking in 2021!

Pumpkin Pie with Marshmallows – This is an excellent pie (which doesn’t have to wait for Thanksgiving) from my friend Erin McDowell, The Book on Pie. I made my Homemade Marshmallows for the top!
